Creative Craft Retreat 2018

Hello everyone, Yay my first blog post for the 2018 Retreat!!!

This email went out this week, if you didn't receive it please let me know so I can add you to the email list. My list may be outdated and your patience would be greatly appreciated as I take over the Craft Retreat. I will add the emails here for those who prefer to keep up to date with the blog. :)
Here is the email.

Hello everyone,

If you aren't already aware through our Creative Craft Retreat web page or Facebook page, Creative Craft Retreat is running once again this year in association with Toowoomba Community Baptist Church. 

My name is Carolyn (Cally) Brunner. I am the new 2018 Coordinator for the Craft Retreat. 

I have taken over coordinating Craft Retreat from Leanne Midgley and it will run along similar lines as previously, although if you've been before, you may notice a few changes here and there!  There wont be too many changes as I have been an active participant at the Camp for 3 years running. So I know it is a wonderful weekend for crafters as it is. 
As always, it will be a wonderful weekend of crafting, chatting, fun and friendship.

It will be held this year from 4pm Friday 26 October to 3pm Sunday 28 October at Lake Perseverance (45 minutes north of Toowoomba). All the information can be found at although it has not been updated as yet, I still need to sort that part out. I will have it up and ready for opening of registrations August 26. In the meantime, you can have a look at what has happened over the previous years camps via the social media/blog sites. You will be able to register and pay online once it is set up.  You can also find Creative Craft Retreat on Facebook at  

There is a small price rise as Leanne was contacted early this year to advise of the camps price rise. Last year the cost was around $135, we need to raise it by $10. Workshops will be extra as per previous years and once all the information is sort for those we will notify you by facebook, blog and email.

Registrations will open August 25 and close on Saturday October 6, 2018. 

  • Are you a talented crafter and would like to share your know how - please send me an email with brief info and photos of your talents. I am in the process of putting together a set of workshops for the weekend.
  • If you have any friends or family that you would like to invite, feel free to pass on all the details. We will be capping the camp at 50 attendees. So once the bookings open, I would suggest you book to avoid disappointment.
Please if you have any questions, feel free to email me. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
I am very much excited and hope to see you there,
So until then, Happy crafting!!!
Carolyn (Cally) Brunner
